Why is the picture from my camera constantly going blank?

I have a usb camera connected to my pi3 which streams @ http://192.168.0.181:8080/stream. It works but the image only stays for 3 to 10 seconds and the image disappears and the screen goes black. I then right click on load image and it's back and repeat. Is there something that can be done to fix this?
Can you give some more details? Firmware and DWC version? What's running on the pi to stream it? What are your settings in DWC for webcam?

Dwc = 3.1.1
Dsf = 3.1.1
Streaming with Ustreamer
Picture of webcam settings
I'll watch the picture and sometimes it will go blank for a split second and then (for lack of a better word) it refreshes. It may do this refresh 3 or 4 times consecutively lasting 30-40 seconds but this rare. Most of the time it goes blank as I described above.
I wonder if this is a symptom of the pi having a high workload.
Are you running in SBC mode with the Pi?
RRF 3.2 is out now, so please update everything and see if the issue persists so that we can check against the current code base at any rate.
